Attention: Assignment, Lifestyle, City, Charity, Photo Editors

For more than 25 years, Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH Toronto) has been providing a safe and supportive place to stay for out-of-town families with seriously ill children. Today, the 28 family bedroom House is constantly at full capacity, forcing RMH Toronto to turn away 70% of families that come for help.

To ensure RMH Toronto can serve more families than they turn away, RMH Toronto is launching a campaign to build a new House that will serve 80 families instead of 28.

On September 29th, RMH Toronto will unveil plans for the new House and take the opportunity to thank the generous donors that are helping to make the new House become a reality.
